PAUL SIMON:  No more new songs

Paul Simon says he's written his final song.

Weeks away from what he says will be his final live show, Simon tells NPR, "I haven't written a new song in a couple of years." He says that after recording his 2016 album Stranger to Stranger, "a funny thing happened when I finished, I literally felt like a switch clicked and I said, 'I'm finished'."

That doesn't mean he hasn't tried -- he says he'd been "fooling around with a little guitar piece."

With his performing and writing careers winding down, Simon says he's gotten involved with Edwin Wilson's Half Earth Foundation, which deals with such ecological issues as climate change.
